Saw a 6 pack for $9.99 at my local grocery store and simply couldn't resist... I'm glad I gave it a shot!
Fairly standard appearance for an ipa. Very clear, medium brown and capped with a fluffy white head. Very appealing.
The smell, similar to the appearance, is standard for the style. Very sharp hop aroma permeates this beer and really doesn't let up... Bitter, angry smelling beer with a hint of alcohol.
Taste is the high point of this brew... Extremely bitter, harsh and one dimensional. If you like an honest to goodness DIPA, this is your beer. (I love it.)
A little sticky, quite bubbly, and slightly tannic. Very nice.
A wonderful beer for hardcore IPA lovers... Not much in the way of malt character, but I'm willing to look past it's shortcomings.
